> This is true - please read!

> Where to begin ........because the last 2 days of my
> life have been such a
> blur.  Yesterday, My youngest daughter Halle who is
> 4, was rushed to the
> emergency room by her father for being severely
> lethargic and incoherent.
> He was called to her school by the school secretary
> for being
> very VERY sick.' He told me that when he arrived
> that Halle was barely
> sitting in the chair. She couldn't hold her own head
> up and when he looked
> into her eyes, she couldn't focus them.He
> immediately called me after he
> scooped her up and rushed her to the ER.
> When we got there, they ran blood test after blood
> test and did x-rays,
> every test imaginable. Her white blood cell count
> was normal, nothing was
> out of the ordinary. The ER doctor told us that he
> had done everything that
> he could do so he was sending her to Saint Francis
> for further test.Right
> when we were leaving in the ambulance, her teacher
> had come to the ER
> and after questioning Halle's classmates, we found
> out that she had licked
> hand sanitizer off her hand. Hand sanitizer, of all
> things. But it makes
> sense. These days they have all kinds of different
> scents and when you have
> a curious child, they are going to put all kinds of
> things in their
> mouths.When we arrived at Saint Francis, we told the
> ER doctor there to
> check her blood alcohol level, which, yes we did get
> weird looks from it but they did
> it. The results were her blood alcohol level was 85%
> and this was 6 hours
> after we first took her. There's no telling what it
> would have been if we
> would have tested it at the first ER.Since then, her
> school and a few
> surrounding schools have taken this out of the
> classrooms of all the lower grade 
> classes but what's to stop middle and high schoolers
> too? 
> After doing research off the internet, we have found
> out that it only takes 3 squirts of the stuff to be
> fatal in a toddler. For
> her blood alcohol level to be so high was to compare
> someone her size to
> drinking something 120 proof.
> So please PLEASE don't disregard this because
> I don't ever want anyone to go thru what my family
> and I have gone thru.
> Today was a little better but not much. Please send
> this to everyone you
> know that has children or are having children. It
> doesn't matter what age.
> I just want people to know the dangers of this.
